Hey Lovelies,

The world of Halloween brings with it a whole host of spooks and scares. But none quite like that you get in the films that many of us watch each year. Whether you love them or hate them, horror films are a must during October.

It is probably why we all love Christmas films so much if you think about it. We go from the horrid to the warm and cosy features with ease yearly. Before them though, there are so many features that I can’t recommend enough to get you in the scaring mood.

Simply grab a bowl of popcorn, sweets and a pillow to shield yourself in and have the ultimate scary night in with:

Halloween: Any of the Halloween films are winners. Whether it be the original or the 2018 sequel, Michael Myers reigns supreme when it comes to horror villains.

A Quiet Place: A bit like a feature-length version of Stranger Things and War of the Worlds, this film will leave you in silence. Both from the amazement at it and the need to not make a sound due to what is happening on screen.

Scream: When I was in school, I chose this feature as one to study in my film class. Since that moment it has been my ultimate winner. I can’t not watch it and I’m not afraid to admit that I can quote along with it to. Plus, it is full of 90s teen terrifying beauty.

IT: Clowns. That is all. Pennywise. Even worse. Watching this will make you never want to buy a yellow coat. Never go near a drain. And stay away from all things to do with the town of Maine. It will also bring your horror-filled joy. Watch either the classic or recent version and you won’t be disappointed.

Women in Black: Daniel Radcliffe completely transforms everything you thought you knew about him in this role. Dark, scary and full of animated toys that will have you removing any you may still have before you’ve even finished watching, it is sure to give you chills.

Insidious: Upon watching this the first time, there was a scene that still to this day I hate. A man in red stood by a cot. I won’t tell you where it is, but it did make me jump so much it felt like my heart had fallen into my stomach. Just warning you.

There are so many features I could have included, but these are the ones that have really stuck with me lovelies. What will you be watching this Halloween? Let me know!
